Emily Bett Rickards revels in the spotlight during an Arrow installment that proves to be satisfying enough that viewers will forgive it for devoting its story to establishing the spinoff Legends of Tomorrow.
Not only did Emily Bett Rickards turn in a powerful performance, but her character's development was spot-on as well.
For most of the hour, Felicity is in rare form, fueled by anger and guilt in the effort to save Ray.
I like their dynamic and don't think it's taking away from Felicity to provide more Terrific Smoak time...
Dig keeps it real. Ollie feels better. Classic bromance moment.
We knew the big "twist" for over half a year thanks to the announcement that Brandon Routh is reprising his Arrow role... it was nonetheless an entertaining and epic episode surrounding the search and rescue of Ray Palmer.
What's great about this episode, "Lost Souls," is that it can be told nearly entirely from the point of view of the comic relief characters, and Arrow has been absolutely nailing those for this entire season.
An episode that feels more like The Flash than I've ever seen Arrow before... I just hope that the firmly set tone presented here continues so Felicity can promptly get on board without the other leg still on the Season 3 "darkness train."
What "Lost Souls" did best was remind us how quickly Oliver and Felcity got together and threw caution to the wind... So much of this hour was about two people who are finding their way in their new dynamic, and it was beautiful.
For an episode that has to balance building another show with the needs of its own characters, 'Lost Souls' makes the right choice in focusing on Felicity and Oliver.
I can't stress the relief Arrow Season 4 will feel once Legends kicks off on its own course through the time stream, but "Lost Souls" at least offered a refreshingly well-built hour in the meantime, knowing exactly the right emotional beats to emphasize.
"Lost Souls" feels like several Arrow episodes crammed into one... To the creative team's credit, however, it never specifically feels like the disaster I've made it out to be.
It was nice to see so many familiar faces back in play, but on the whole this episode marked a low point for the season so far.
